From the Pro ~ August 2021

Dear Members,

In my last newsletter, I mentioned after the 4th of July, time flies by and it sure has. It was a very busy July, and it shows with rounds being 2,000 more year to date than 2020.

In the month of July, we partied with our Margaritaville themed Member-Member, had a Christmas in July with our Bucks & Does, crowned our Queen Bee/Lady Bug and named a Senior Club Champion.

August will be filled with many more events and hopefully just as good of weather as we had for July! We can’t wait to glow up the course for our Family Glow Golf, mysteriously hold our Bucks & Does Mystery Night and run our last Intermediate Night of the year, our Drink Around the World Invitational.

Our cart ruling information is posted below but we have seen many instances of improper cart traffic and/or placement on the course. Please be aware the cart ruling for the day and when you drive to the green, drive your golf cart back to the path/yellow markings and have all (4) wheels on the path.

A few examples of improper driving are: The right side of #6, behind the green on #9, to the left side on #11 or anywhere other than the path on #17.

As always, if you have any questions from what is listed above or below, please call the Golf Shop or email me. We hope to see you out on the course!

From the Pro July 2021

Dear Members,

It is hard to believe that the Fourth of July is right around the corner and sadly in my years as a Golf Professional, once this date comes around, summer flies by even faster. June was a pack filled month, kicking off with our Men’s Invitational, crowing a King and Queens, A Parent-Child event to remember and our Junior Camp that was filled with joy of 18 juniors.

Do not think we’re slowing down just yet; July will be filled with many more events and hopefully just as good as weather as we had for June! See below for details.

As always, if you have any questions from what is listed below, please call the Golf Shop or email me. We hope to see you out on the course!

Pickleball Open

From the Board of Directors:

To Ligonier Country Club Members:

As you may have noticed, our new pickleball courts are open and ready for play. Here are some guidelines.

All Ligonier Country Club members are encouraged to use the courts at any time during the day or early evening. We intend to have “open play” on both courts each day from 10:00 am to 12:00 and 4:00 to 7:00 pm. This will be for all levels of play. Reservations are not needed – just show up with your friends and guests and enjoy the competition and comradery. Courts may be reserved for a private group at any other time. Call the pro shop to reserve a court for one or two hours.

Guests of LCC members are welcomed. They must be accompanied by a member.

Typical pickleball attire (tees, athletic shorts, and sneakers) is acceptable. However, if using any of our other facilities, the LCC dress code is still in effect, and a change of clothes will be required. Members will be responsible for notifying their guests of our dress code policy.

For beginners, we will be having an instruction event in the very near future. Until then, we have copies of the basic rules of pickleball in the pro shop. Stop by and pick up a copy. Also, the pro shop will have a limited supply of paddles and balls available for use. Give it a try!

Ligonier Country Club is trying very hard to add benefit to our membership. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the country and is a sport that can be enjoyed by everyone. So come out and learn the game and give it a try.

Pickleball 2

From the Pro ~ June 2021

The Golf Season is in full swing and we have enjoyed some fantastic weather. It’s hard to believe it is already June and we are just getting started with events. In May, we had our Opening Day, Pups Paws & Pars, Bucks & Does, Intermediate Night and our first Family Fun Night.

As you read below, you will see details for the month of June regarding upcoming events that will affect play, new events, Junior Golf and much more!

One thing we strive to do, is come up with new, fun and exciting things for you, the members. If you follow the club on Facebook or the Golf Shop on Instagram, you would have noticed we have developed a segment we are calling, Golf Shop Shorts. This “short” segment focused on the driving range, how to properly practice and take a divot. We plan to do many segments this year on an array of golf topics from club fitting to lesson tips to proper cart driving. The next episode will be coming very shortly but if you missed our first, the links are below.
